Injuries in sports are just as common as anything else, but some are just more gruesome than others.
Case in point: this recent weightlifting competition.
Russian powerlifter Yaroslav Radoshkevich had no clue his life would turn upside after attempting a lift that would completely shattering his right leg at the powerlifting Eurasian Championship in Khabarovsk, Russia.
The reports state he was coming into this event with an already sprained ankle.
Watch below if you can:
Unfortunately, that fracture ended his career entirely.
“I can hardly return to this sport following such an injury. I had achieved a lot but I will have quit my hopes and ambitions as rehabilitation will approximately take six months,” he said.
Once he was taken to the hospital, it was revealed that he suffered a double closed fracture of his shinbone and complete fracture of his ankle.
